Default Victory vs Triumph

Anyone sail on both? What did you like about each? what is different?
I
sailed the Triumph once.. and the Inspiration twice.
Triumph and Victory are doing the same itinerary and not sure what to book..
What makes me nervous about the Victory is the food choices..it didn;t seem as many choices as Triumph...

Thoughts anyone..?
Victory is also cheaper.. so wondering if that means not as good..

Have sailed both: Triumph 1999, Victory 3/04.

ALL Carnvial basic menus are the same fleetwide for 7 days. Individual chefs MIGHT mix day 1 appetisers, day 2 entrees and day 3 desserts but over the entire cruise you will get everything.

I'm on the Victory for Jan 1, 2006. I don't think they are both going the same place, I think the price has something to do the date they are sailing. I agree, the food should be the same. the price may be determined by the number of passengers booked also.

Only differance is the decor and the staff. The ships are the same class and the menus are the same. The shows are however different. You might even see the same people on both ships when the leave for vacation and come back and go to a differant ship.

Don't know if this helps, but keep in mind the Triumph is going into drydock this month. So she will be looking all shiny and new.

The Triumph is older than the Victory I believe.

Whoever said that the Victory had terrible service obviously didn't have my waiter and asst. They were AWESOME! SO was the food.

You can get a steak and/or baked potato every night even if it isn't on the menu.

Default Victory V Triumph

My husband and I have sailed both (Triumph 2001 and Victory 2005), both were superb ships. The only difference I noticed was the decor. The food and service was excellent as always.

If anyone does take either of these ships, they both stop at Cozumel. When yo dock at Puerta Maya, go inside the shopping center area and look for a little t-shirt store across from Rogers Boots. Ask for Alex, tell him Sheri and Randy said hello and will see him Dec 15, 2005. Buy a t-shirt from him too, he is a personal friend and a great guy.

Hope you have a good time.

Sheri
